It was the counterculture of the 1960s that brought casual fashion to the forefront, resulting in a decline of the very formal attires and giving rise to the go-to uniform of that era – tees, jeans and casual shoes.
Today, this everyday fashion sense translates into a care-free, relaxed and flexible clothing that’s fresh and easy. Even in the world of footwear, casual shoes enjoy celebrated success; people from every walk of life, of every demographic and every gender embrace and swear by casual shoes.
At JENNEN Shoes, we understand how the modern man – metrosexual, meticulous or always on the move – needs a solid pair of footwear to take him through the day, every day. These top picks are not just sculpted for looks; these casual elevator shoes help you stand taller and look your best, whether you’re tall or short.
MR. SHAUN 6CM | 2.4 INCHES TALLER HIGH-TOP ELEVATOR SNEAKERS
A wardrobe without white sneakers will always be incomplete. White, evergreen and impressionable, always serves as an easy accent on the eyes. Mr. Shaun is one such height increasing sneaker that elevates your style without overpowering your attire.
With a kick of 6cm in height, these casual shoes are perfect for your city walks, city jobs or anything around the cityscape that fancies your nature. There is a pun hidden somewhere regarding these sneakers being sneaky elevator shoes, but we’ll leave that for you.
Built from premium grade cow leather, these all-white sneakers resist staining (unlike canvas, which stains relatively easily). The high-top structure protects your ankles comfortably, preventing sprains and strains when you’re out and about your day.
More importantly, you can lace Mr. Shaun higher than – let’s say – sleeker shoes, which means you can be sure of a stable and firm footing.
MR. APOLONIO BROWN 8CM | 3.2 INCHES TALLER NEW ELEVATOR SHOES

A crowning jewel of JENNEN’s height increasing sneakers, Mr. Apolonio is a footwear that demands respect, albeit in a cool and laidback fashion – much like its namesake: the Greek God Apollo.

MR. NORRIS 7CM | 2.8 INCHES TALLER ELEVATOR CHELSEA BOOTS
Sometimes, a style of the past suddenly pops out into the present and latches onto the imagination of the people, transcending cultures and boundaries.
Chelsea boots are one such example, with Mr. Norris – a Chelsea boot offering from the house of JENNEN – representing a bygone era in a modernised depiction of style-statement and comfort.
While the boots trace their origin back to Queen Victoria’s shoemaker, this modern-day avatar represents a clever form of simplicity.
This shoe features a flexible side-panel that easily stretches to accommodate your foot. The design also promotes a tight grip on the shoe, which eliminates the requirements of laces.
Mr. Norris comes in a beautiful light brown and black shade with suede finish, complimented by wood-and-rubber outsole that works like an ornament. A 7cm elevation – hidden from plain sight – makes these a wonderful choice for those men seeking height increasing shoes.
Who would have thought that the end-effect of a cultural movement would outlive the movement itself, becoming a fashion icon and sprouting designs that people continue to use throughout their lives?
In fact, casual shoes have become so common that people even pair these with suits, giving an informal edge to their personas. Why, even sports shoes – with their comfort and usability – have been placed within the wider umbrella of the casual dressing sense.
Seeing that the trend of casual clothing won’t see a decline in the foreseeable future, it is safe to assume that functionality has finally found a common ground with everyday style that appeals to everyone.
